The existing building mainly dates from the nineteenth century while it was rebuilt following a fire. The House of Commons (the elected Parliament members) is situated to the building’s north and is embellished with green leather-based upholstery, and the House of Lords is situated towards the south and furnished with purple leather upholstery.
